Cleaning in physiotherapy centres protects the most vulnerable

The importance of practising in a hygienic environment

The importance of practising in a hygienic environment

Physiotherapy, as a branch of medicine with preventive, curative and rehabilitative purposes, must be carried out in a clean and healthy environment. This is essential to protect the physiotherapist, but even more so, to protect the patients who can often be vulnerable people such as children, the elderly or the immunocompromised.

The risk of patients contracting diseases in unclean environments increases significantly, and a physiotherapy centre that receives several patients throughout the day is a high-risk location.

To ensure the health and safety of patients, therefore, equipment and devices must be kept consistently clean between visits.

From the table to the instruments: where harmful micro-organisms lurk

On the patient treatment table is where most harmful micro-organisms inevitably lurk. Usually a paper sheet is spread out between examinations and changed from time to time to remove most of the microorganisms released by the patient.

But this is not enough, just think of the face support that is in contact with body fluids such as saliva and sweat and that is not covered by the paper sheet. This surface must be sanitised directly by the physiotherapist who in turn must sanitise his or her hands to prevent them becoming a vehicle for transporting harmful micro-organisms.

The cleaning tool used makes all the difference

The cleaning tool used makes all the difference

The physiotherapy patient, especially if vulnerable, has the right to feel safe in a healthy and protected environment. The central vacuum system Sistem Air Pro is able to protect the health of patients and operators. It also makes cleaning easier for them.

The central vacuum system is silent, so as not to disturb the other patients in the physiotherapy centre, practical to use, so that cleaning can be carried out quickly between visits, but above all it is able to truly eliminate harmful micro-organisms by expelling them outside the facility.

This tool, which is complementary to disposable paper towels and does not replace disinfectants, does however guarantee the physiotherapy centre hygiene and an excellent level of indoor air quality. It is thus indispensable for the effective protection of the health of operators and patients.
